It was a cold morning on Saturday when some of the staff from Noonan’s Security at The Square Tallaght traveled to the Forty Foot at Dún Laoghaire to take a jump into the icy water.
The jump was organised by Susan Maloney who was fundraising for her own sister in law Marina Jordan Killoran. A number friends and family were also there on the day to show there support but more importantly to dive in. They all braved the conditions well with Carmel Power who works with Noonan’s diving in more than three times, a round of applause was given to the team who ranged in all different ages.
Marina is 45 years of age and is a mother of two who suffers from a very rare autoimmune disease called Systemic sclerosis. She has recently returned from the North Western Memorial hospital in Chicago where she met with Dr Richard Burt. While there he carried out and assessment on her, which has proven positive as he has declared her a candidate for a life saving stem cell transplant.
The cost of the transplant is $125,000.00, Marina along with her family are hoping to raise the funds with the help of the public. The family are running events to help raise publicity which in turn they hope will help with raising the figure.
